Softball Friends

What we didn't realize when we started softball was that we would make such great friends.  We made many friends but one family in particular has become close friends of ours over the last couple of months.  They have two kids, one girl that is 8 yrs old, and one boy that is six yrs old.  They also have one of their nieces with them a large part of the time and she is almost 10 yrs old.  All our kids get along very well.  Their daughter is also a red head and looks like she is the twin of Celestial.  Our kids have begun spending every free minute they can together.  I even had the three of them at church with us today.  It was quite the sight as we took up almost two full rows with all of us.  My twins have even become very close with each of them and ask for them when they are not around.  It has become the type of friendship that I expect will continue even after we move away and those types of friendships are few and far between.  I am so glad we decided to participate in softball this year for so many reasons.  It was well worth it and I look forward to the girls continuing this fall in fall softball.

I haven't had time to post on here in forever but I am hoping to use Sundays to do so more often, with the help of the kids.  We'll see how that goes.

The kids have been growing like crazy, as kids do.  Time seems to fly fast as each day passes.  Ben is coming to the end of his Army time so we are all looking forward to moving back to Idaho (or that area) to be back with my family.  I am very stressed about getting the house ready to sell or rent but hoping I can get everything done in time.  We are hoping to be out there before Christmas.

I am finishing up with school and am hoping to graduate by October so that should give us time to finish packing up.  Once we are settled, I am hoping to get our home business built up so that hopefully at some point Ben can work with me from home and we can travel with the kids.

Ben recently finished coaching Celestial's basketball team and enjoyed it much more than he expected he would.  We looked forward to not coaching when we signed the girls up for softball and then ended up coaching anyway, but we enjoy it.  The girls we coach are 7-8 yrs old and so much fun.  Celestial has become completely addicted to sports and especially softball, which she whines about if she doesn't get to practice every single day.  Eden enjoys it but isn't quite so much obsessed with it.  Luci is just starting and seems to really enjoy it as well.  She just finished soccer and also begged to go every day.

Israel has never been much of a sports kid.  He is more into Yu-gi-oh cards and anything relating to the computer.  I wouldn't be surprised if he followed in my steps someday.  The twins are growing like crazy and causing all sorts of trouble together but we can't help but laugh.  They are still in that cute stage.  They are best friends and hate to be seperated.  They haven't seen snow yet so I am looking forward to moving out west and seeing their faces the first time they see it as I still remember the shock from Luci the first time she saw snow.  I will never forget that little face.

Hopefully you all enjoy this little update.  I will try to keep them coming more often.
